Can I just say a massive thank you for the whole experience of afternoon tea for mammys 60th birthday. From the time we stepped into the building the greeting we received from that very handsome gent at the door with a personal birthday greeting for mam she was in shock. The hotel is fab and the lord mayors room decor is out of this world. Our waitress was Rosín and she couldn't do enough for us constantly topping up our drinks throughout the experience the food was scrumptious I cant keep telling people about it. The service was nothing I ever experienced before and well worth the price. Will be returning for sure for the next special occasion and will be hoping to stay the night as a treat. Thank you to all the staff for doing what you do we could see you clearly are passionate doing what you do. Please pass this message on to the staff that took care of us you created an ever lasting memory for us. Thanks from the Harvey's and Saunders x

From start to finish, our experience at afternoon tea at the Lord Mayors Lounge was wonderful. We got the vegan afternoon tea which included a delicious and well thought out array of food. The service was extremely good with very friendly and helpful staff looking afternoon us. All aspects of the afternoon were compliant with covid-19 regulations.

Old world experience and by that I mean it was wonderful. Afternoon tea is something that is being lost with every new generation but it is a very civilised experience. One could say that is is very expensive, and I guess it is, but it is an experience. Unfortunately with the current restrictions of 1 hour 45 mins it takes away from that experience and this should be taken into account. But in general one would not take 4 hours for afternoon tea I guess. Beautiful location. Immaculate surroundings. Great Covid19 care and attention. Special shout out to Jamie who was very pleasant and patient.

As someone with experience in the hospitality industry,I am usually fussy when it comes to eating out and pick up on faults with service quite easily.However I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon tea.The service was impeccable,our teas never got low,and we were repeatedly asked if we needed more sandwiches which we then received at no extra cost. The food itself was divine,I loved the combination of salmon with lakeshore mustard and the mousse with the foam and sable was beautiful.Some people may be apprehensive about paying 55€ for afternoon tea but I believe it was worth every cent. I will definitely return on my next trip to Dublin!

I had the gluten free option so I was interested to see what it would be like and while the scone and desserts were quite good the sandwiches were really poor, not jist the texture of the bread which felt was borderline stale but i understand how hard it is to get nice gluten free bread but the fillings were quite tasteless too so overall I didnt feel it was worth the money. Service was excellent!!
